dmesg output, after the crash.

Using Gentoo, with:
Xorg intel driver 2.9.1
libdrm 2.4.18
kernel 2.6.32

My graphics hardware (output of lspci):

Here is what happens: while I'm doing nothing special (like filling a form in firefox) the screen goes black. Using CTRL+ALT+Fn doesn't change anything on screen, but I can blind type commands (like "reboot"). I can also log in through ssh and get some information (see below for dmesg and intel_gpu_dump). I cannot trigger the bug, it seems to happen randomly (happens 3 times between 08:30 and 10:00 CET)

A last thing I should say, which might be related, is that getting EDID is a problem on this box. Most of the time, it is corrupted : the end of it is missing (hexdump shows ff), usually resulting in a checksum error.

Although the symptoms are different, I suspect this is related to bug #25765. I must also add that in the past, with previous versions of the kernel, libdrm and the intel drivers, I've had various symptoms such as hard crash (no ssh possible, no sysrq keys would work), X server crash but with the ability to use tty1-6, or screen going funny in X, like : frozen but with the mouse still working, or almost-frozen with some apps (Emacs) able to partially modify the screen... each time I was hoping that the next version of kernel/Xorg/libdrm would fix it (my expectations were high after bug #25475 was set to "FIXED") but each time a new symptom seemed to appear.

Thanks for looking into it, and please let me know if I should provide more info, or if I can otherwise help to debug.

I really have no idea if this is useful, but I said I would attach it.

Xorg log after the crash

This log was obviously made after an automatic restart of the X server, so it might be useless as well, but I include it for completeness...

(Side note : I see that many people receive emails because of my attachments... really I'm sorry about this. I don't know if too many attachments is better than too few, and I don't know if I should have made a tarball instead. This is not addressed in the Bug Writing Guidelines, so if someone has an answer, my email box is always open! Thanks)
Comment 4 Cyril Brulebois 2010-02-26 22:10:21 UTC
I'm getting this regularly (every few hours usually) as well.

I'm running something similar:
 * Debian's 2.6.32-9 kernel (including up to plus patches)
 * Intel driver 2.9.1
 * libdrm 2.4.18.

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
        Subsystem: Dell Device 0201

As for reproducibility, some clues are available in #25475:

I didn't try them yet though, wanted to leave a note on the tracker before doing so. AFAIR my crashes happened while either scrolling down a web browser, or even while scrolling down in git log's internal pager.
